Early diagnosis

Early diagnosis screening exams are used to identify tumors or cancerous cells at an early stage. The goal is to reduce mortality rates, lessen the invasiveness of treatment options, and improve the overall quality of lifeof cancer patients.

The clinic at LILT Bologna, offers early diagnosis exams to LILT members of all ages. We aim to spread the importance of early diagnosis through awareness campaigns throughout the community.

Cancer screenings are equally important for the over sixty population. LILT posts opportunities for early diagnosis exams at Social and Comunnity Centers in Bologna and throughout the province.

The visits – available for LILT members - are held at our clinic on Via Turati 67 and include:

  • Clinical breast ultrasounds
  • Pap tests
  • Dermatology visits
  • Examination of the oral cavities (for people at high risk of mouth cancer)
  • Fecal Occult Blood Test to spot traces of blood in stool samples which can be indicative stomach or colon cancer (>60 years)

  • Full abdomen ultrasounds (>60 years of age)
